Then again, if you are informed about the hazards of milk, especially homogenized, pasteurized, loaded with hormone and anti-biotic milk, this comes as no surprise.
I personally gave up drinking milk a long time ago. I do occasionally have some cheese or butter, but certainly not everyday.
I have several friends who have an allergy to dairy. This is beyond just lactose intolerance. What about the proteins that are in the milk?
There are a lot of people who might have an issue with milk sensitivity and don’t even realize it. For a self experiment, I am going to avoid dairy for 3 weeks. That means cutting out cheese, yogurt, butter and all milk products. That means reading food labels carefully.
Personally, I haven’t had a glass of milk in over a decade. I haven’t missed it one bit.
There are much better and healthier sources of calcium:
- leafy green vegetables
- broccoli, kale, spinach
- Salmon, sardines
- Sesame seeds,
- blackstrap molasses
- corn tortillas
Milk is not the only source of calcium on the planet. This list of calcium containing foods contains some good healthy options.
Milk is certainly on the “Acidic” side of the alkaline diet chart.
Goat milk product are a better option for some people. Others are better off giving up milk and dairy altogether. Sometimes self experimentation is the best way to figure out just what is right for you.
Raw Goat Milk is slightly alkaline. Almond Milk is an excellent alkalizing choice. Almond milk also has much less chance of food allergy/sensitivity issues.
